Bull to premiere Sundays on Ten

Ten has locked in new US series Bull for Sundays from next month.

Michael Weatherly makes his television return in his best role yet, as Dr Jason Bull, a brilliant, brash and charming puppet master with an extraordinary gift.

Inspired by the early career of Dr Phil McGraw, the founder of one of the most prolific trial consulting firms of all time, Bull is set to become Australia’s new guilty pleasure.

Dr Bull is not a lawyer, but he can read a jury like a book. Using psychology, human intuition and high tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses and the accused tick, Dr Bull knows how a jury will vote, even before they do.

He employs a clever team of experts, charged with shaping the outcome of high-stakes trials down to the very last detail. Dr Bull’s combination of remarkable insights into human nature, three Ph.D.s and top-notch staff create winning strategies designed to tip the scales of justice in his clients’ favour.

A legal drama unlike any other, Bull premieres Sunday, 5 March, at 8.30pm on Ten
